Guest ERuff Posted November 25, 2007 Share Posted November 25, 2007 October 15, 2006 was the date I was diagnosed with a SAH. However, at the time and after two angios, no aneurysm or AVM was located. I was told my bleed may have come from a growth on my pituitary gland but was also told 15% of the doctorâ€™s patients have an undiagnosed (unknown cause for) bleed. Well, it has been one year and I am still healing. I still have much pressure behind my eyes and have uneasy feelings in my head and neck. I donâ€™t have anywhere near the pain and dizziness I had in the beginning (I thought I was dieing the first 4 months) but the pressure on my eyes lingers. I have felt a steady progression in my healing over the last year. Basically, it has gone as follows: First four months: severe dizziness and pain over entire head, stiff neck, depressed. Next four months: dizziness tapered off, the pain seamed to go away in sections (the back of my head healed first), neck was less stiff, depression down. Last four months: pain now on side of head & front, neck not stiff, got back to working out with weights/ ignoring the pain, depression down. Today, it has been 1 year and 1 month and I am still wondering when the pressure behind my eyes will go away. Up until now, after having found this site, I was not sure what I was experiencing was normal. I can see now it is and everyone heals in their own time. Some tips for feeling better and dealing with the headaches: It may sound funny but I found some relief by wearing a knit hat and earmuffs (even in the summer). I would wear one that was tight on my head and earmuffs the same way. It really helped with the pressure. A friend of mine has a brother who also had a SAH and confirmed that he wore similar hats around the house and found some comfort. Maybe this will help someone so I thought I would shareâ€¦..
